Pico De Gallo {Recipe}

Pico De Gallo is a fresh Salsa's a great way to eat healthy and a perfect alternative to preservative filled store bought salsa and dips and other upside is that there are many ways to customize it.

This is the recipe I used;

  • 5 Medium On-the-Vine Tomatoes (other kinds of tomatoes can be substituted) 
  • 3/4 of a large White onion (can sub purple)
  • 1 lime (Juice)
  • Bunch on Fresh Cilantro 
  • Salt


  1. Chop tomatoes to salsa sized bits (removing seeds) 
  2. Slice & Dice Onion very fine.
  3. Remove Stems from Cilantro and Slice & Dice very fine. 
  4. Mix together 
  5. Add lime juice
  6. Salt to taste
  7. Add optional ingredients (See Below) 

    Optional Ingredients; 
    Green Onion
    Fresh Garlic
    Jalapeno (very commonly used, but we left it out :) )
    Hot sauce
    Tabasco Sauce
     Hubby suggested Black olives

    Serve on Tacos, with Chips or Crackers  - Crack open a Carona (or, in this nursing mama's Case, a Lime + ice water) and enjoy!
